Happy Sunny Easter Day!

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24
Easter Sunday was beautiful sunny day for a family gathering and Easter Egg hunt. Click on the picture below to see the 'paint' buckets that had been full of candy filled plastic eggs that the 'Easter Bunny' (older children) hid around the yard. If you look closely in the tree limbs at the top you will see that there are even eggs in the trees. The Easter basket on the top of the buckets I made that morning from a Sunny Delight jug.
Since the yard was covered by Easter eggs the little ones had to play in the house. The girls didn't mind because it was a perfect excuse to play with the Barbies and the boy had cars so they were equally entertained.
A beautiful day for grilling. Our chef is always trying out new delicious recipes on us. This day he had bell peppers stuff with a chili-cheese concoction. Mmmmm.....
Plenty of food for everyone as always.
Again, click on the picture to get a better view. The children were called out to the porch and then lined up at the bottom of the stairs and finally turned loose to hunt for eggs....
...when no more eggs were being found it was time to take a count. There were 108 eggs when they began and amazingly, 108 when they were done.
The next step was to empty all the candy out of the eggs so the bigger kids could have fun taking turns hiding them for each other.
And it was time to just have fun outside in the wonderful weather.
Hope Everyone had a Wonderful Easter with their families as well!
